democrats are barely human, let alone as advanced as the Neanderthals were.  Calling a democrat a neanderthal is an insult to neanderthals.

Irish.

Celtic, or Norse--since Dublin was founded by Vikings?

And if dubbed Irish by virtue of Celtic bloodlines, how to distinguish that from Celtic Scots ? (Since the Scots migrated over from Ireland)

Irish legends have their ancestors coming across the seas from coastal Spain, where there is a province called Galicia and they have bagpipes there.

But the Celts of the Iberian peninsula would have migrated previously from the Central Asian steppes, beforehand.

Those Central Asian steppes were also the origin point of present day Germanic and Scandinavian "tribes."

To get the obvious joke out of the way first - looking around our local pub, the Neanderthals never left, they just moved to Woolwich.

I do find this fascinating. The idea that a mere 50,000 years ago there was a completely different intelligent race, close enough to interbreed, is thought provoking.
